Paterfamilias.

Happy Father's Day to:
  • my dad, who helped me pass my math classes in high school by helping me to learn math, and who helped me learn a little bit of trigonometry over the phone in college, and who wanted me to go to college so much that he never made a big deal out of it, just made it an underlying assumption for me and my brother and sisters, so we all did. And for being so proud of me and for loving me for my whole life.
  • my kids' dad, who is a great, big-hearted, loving father and an all-round terrific person.
  • my husband, who loves his kids like crazy and is a stalwart, always-on-your-side dad to all of them, and who loves my kids, too, which if you do the math, is a lot of kids to love that he didn't have to, but he did, which is one of the zillion reasons I love him.
  • all the rest of you dads out there. More power to you for being the man who finds it in him to love and nurture a kid.
